Let Food Be Thy Medicine

It is incredible what food can do for your Body!

And yet, it isn't really. It makes perfect sense! What you put into your body is literally the ONLY fuel it gets - we don't photosynthesize. So how could food NOT be medicine? Sure, it may work a bit slower than concentrated drugs, but it is no less potent over a lifetime.

In collaboration with the UC San Diego Center for Integrative Nutrition, the Berry Good Food Foundation convenes a panel of experts to discuss the rise of comprehensive medicine and nutritional healing to treat chronic disease and maintain general well-being.

Die Verpackungsproblematik

Eine sehr spannende und aufschlussreiche Dokumentation!

Wer dachte auch immer Bio-Plastik ist Nachhaltig?

Muss ja, Bio heisst ja gleich Ökologisch.

Naja, leider eben nicht.

Hier eine sehr spannende Doku über das Thema Verpackungen und welche tatsächlich am nachhaltigsten ist.

Zero Waste Cities

Very cool movement for a brighter tomorrow!

Zero Waste Europe is a Brussels-based NGO founded in 2013. They empower communities to rethink their relationship with resources, operating as a knowledge network and as an advocacy group. They engage at two levels:

  • Supporting local groups with independent knowledge and streamlined tools to drive change more efficiently. They currently work with active communities in 24 countries.

  • Structuring the movement internationally to better represent the interests of their communities at the EU level and engage policymakers with a unified voice.

What You Eat Matters

Not for the faint of heart, but a stirring and inspiring film nevertheless!

For me, this is a must-watch, especially if you are consuming a lot of animal products.

Beyond the shocking treatment of animals in factory farms and slaughterhouses, are the adverse health effects of eating too much meat, the environmental impact of grazing land, and the vast resources consumed to raise livestock commercially.

 

We, humans, are omnivores, not carnivores - and yet with meat being more accessible and often cheaper than ever before in history, we are consuming our way into oblivion - and quickly.
